Had my second cup this morning….never can decide whether I really like a tea until I’ve had my second cup. Really loved the smell out of the bag….very malty black tea smell. Once steeped, it reminded me of a strong Irish breakfast. Steeped it my usual 5 minutes for black tea and added my usual milk and sugar. Had that taste you get when you steep black tea a little too long. Not sure if I should try steeping it for less time or if I just don’t like it as much as other black teas. I prefer a really smooth black tea and this one wasn’t it.

This is one that loses its appeal if you add milk. Try it without next time, I suspect you’ll like it a lot more.

Thanks for the tip! I usually default with milk and sugar for black teas, but I’ll try this out!

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
